Sales for consoles

Hey I'm an avid nintendo fan but also enjoy the other systems. I know this is from vgchartz but it's a decent basis to go by....9 months into their life.

Wii U - 3.4 million (thought it was higher?) Software - 8.7 million (digitals not included)
Xbox 360 - 4.2 million - Software - 11.9 million
Wii - 10.7 million (damn) Software - 34.3 million (holy damn)
PS3 - 4.4 million - Software - 12.5 million

So the Wii U is behind but I think once Zelda/DKC/New Mario come out that it will sell great this holiday.The bundles will help boost sales. I think the PS4 and Xbox One will probably do better than the current gen as well.

1 million PS4's? Is that legit? That would be an insane amount in the first week.

Its preorders. Those can range from being fully paid off to having a name on a list associated with intent to buy, so its hard to call it real data. Still with 2 and a half months till launch any data is far from final.

Most people I know that pre-ordered the PS4 the day it went up are canceling as they looked at the line up, and see no reason to strap themselves for the cash so close to the holiday season, as most the games they want are gonna be on the PS360.

I've heard it said that the PS4 has broken Pre-order records or something. That also means though that they have more pre-orders available.

The WiiU also sold out on pre-orders and for the first few weeks was tough to find in stores.

Both the PS4 and Xbox1 are going to be out just in time for the Christmas rush. You can expect WiiU sales will also likely pick up as a result of the Christmas rush too.

January is going to be the first real test for Sony and Microsoft. January is a slow time of the year for console sales.

vgchartz holds up late information. come back in 2-3 months and it will tell the sales for today.

I'm going to get the xboxOne, my fiancee is an avid xbox fan. I like the xbox360 as well. I love the Wii U though. The PS4 does nothing for me honestly.

I got the Wii U the first week and remember having a hard time finding one. Once January hit and there were no games at all. It just stalled.
